...Updated Aviation Discussion...

.Short Term...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 254 AM EDT Thu Sep 20 2018

Quiet and calm weather ongoing this morning thanks to a large upper 
level ridge currently over the TN Valley. GOES-16 IR products show 
mostly clear skies across the region, and very pronounced 
valley/river fog just to our east in the Appalachians. Winds have 
generally been light to calm so far this morning, so can't rule out 
some patchy ground fog developing in the usual fog-prone areas later 
this morning before sunrise. Any fog that does form should burn off 
quickly after sunrise. 

Another hot and mostly sunny day will be on tap, with temperatures 
generally reaching the upper 80s to low 90s. When combined with 
dewpoints in the upper 60s to low 70s, heat indices west of I-65 
could approach 100 degrees for a few hours this afternoon. Doesn't 
look like we'll get much relief from the heat in the form of rain, 
as warm air aloft due to the presence of the upper level ridge will 
keep most convection suppressed. A few high-res models hint at some 
very isolated storms developing late this afternoon north of I-64, 
but coverage of said showers looks to be too low to include in grids 
at this time.

Another warm, muggy night will be in store tonight. Winds will pick 
up some overnight as a weak LLJ develops and the pressure gradient 
tightens in response to a deepening low near the Great Lakes region.

.Long Term...(Friday through Wednesday)
Issued at 255 AM EDT Thu Sep 20 2018

Vigorous storm system moving across the northern Great Lakes into 
Ontario on Friday will drive a cold front SE into the Ohio Valley. 
We'll have plenty of instability ahead of the front to support 
strong updrafts. Stronger deep-layer shear to organize a potential 
squall line will remain to our north and northeast, but not out of 
the question that we could catch the tail end of the line. Marginal 
SVR risk for southern Indiana and north-central Kentucky looks to be 
reasonable, given the potential for a line or pulse threat. That 
could increase if the shear were to extend farther SW. 

Cold front becomes oriented parallel to the upper flow on Friday 
night, and a weak wave ejecting out of the southern Plains will 
support renewed precip chances on Saturday, especially across 
southern Kentucky. To the north of that precip shield, high pressure 
over the Great Lakes will bring cool and cloudy conditions with 
temps more typical of October. 

Sunday forecast will be largely dependent on just where the stalled 
front remains hung up under flat upper flow. Additional waves of 
showers and storms along the front will keep at least south-central 
Kentucky unsettled, and perhaps even more of the area if the ECMWF 
is correct in its frontal position, which is farther north than the 
GFS. That front will lift north on Sun night as upper flow backs SW 
in response to downstream ridging, with broad and moist southerly 
flow setting up on Monday. GFS and ECMWF paint a lot of QPF, but 
this is often overdone in the warm sector. 

Unsettled weather continues Tue-Wed as a longwave upper trof pushes 
a cold front at least well into the Ohio Valley, if not all the way 
through. Too early to get too detailed with severe potential, but 
the system looks dynamic enough to support at least some stronger 
storms. Expect above normal temps and borderline summertime humidity 
through the first half of next week, with clouds and precip limiting 
diurnal ranges. 

Widespread QPF totals over the period will likely average 2-3 
inches. However, depending on the placement of any heavier and/or 
repeated rainfall, higher amounts will likely result in flooding 
along some streams.

&&

.Aviation...(12Z TAF Issuance)
Issued at 642 AM EDT Thu Sep 20 2018

Some isolated patchy ground fog has developed this morning across 
the region, but should quickly burn off after sunrise. VFR 
conditions are then expected for the rest of the forecast period. A 
weak (~30kt) LLJ near 2kft is forecast to develop after midnight, 
but LLWS looks to be weak enough to not need mention in TAFs at this 
time.
